Default Oww thats hot!!! my cpu that is...

I decided to run abit eq on my rig and run sisoft sandra's burn in wizard

thats almost 135C is this too hot? or is it still safe i just purchased this

five bucks so all in all not a bad investment also got a pci fan card with an 80mm fan on it. its red now but im gonna switch it with a manually adjusted blue led one which totalled about 6 bucks for both hopefully this will cool down my heck a hot cpu
let me know if this hsf was a good deal
i saw it at fry's today for 20 bucks so i dont think i did too bad

That looks like a KA fan for the price. Seems a little hot to me, so yeah the fan was a good idea.

Get yourself a fan controller and then switch out the heatsink fan for a vantec tornado,It will work a lot better than that stock 37cfm fan

That isnt that bad, my parents northwood runs at 57

And during a freak accident of unplugging the fan before benchmark, i reached 110+ degrees

Computer crashed, would not boot (said tempetarutre error) and the BIOS told me the temp.
